Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe
You’ll need: 4 large microwave-safe mugs

INGREDIENTS
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup high quality cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
3/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Toppings, like whipped cream, powdered sugar or chocolate sauce

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Combine all ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not over mix.
2. Divide between four mugs. One at a time, microwave on high for 2 1/2-3 minutes, until cake rises above the mug.
3. Let cool for 2 minutes and garnish with desired toppings.

Tip: Cakes can be made in mugs, cooled and then frozen for up to 1 month. Add toppings just before serving.

Vanilla Mug Cake Recipe

Follow the chocolate mug cake recipe, substituting seeds from 1/2 a vanilla bean (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract) for the cocoa. Cut the bean in half lengthwise, then use a small sharp knife to scrape out the seeds. Garnish with twirls of lemon peel.

Tip: For a stronger lemon flavor, use 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest instead. Finish with a lemon glaze: Heat 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice over low heat and stir until sugar melts. Brush over cakes while they’re still warm and let it soak in for 20-30 minutes before serving.

Red Velvet Mug Cake

Follow chocolate mug cake recipe, adding 1 tablespoon of red food coloring. Top with cream cheese frosting and fresh strawberry slices.
